Q&A with Mikaela
What’s your favorite thing about working at Kitsap Bank?
Everything about Kitsap Bank revolves around community and family. Family is the most important thing to me and I love working for a company that shares that same mindset.
What did you want to be when you grew up?
I really wanted to be in the health care field as a nurse, or something in the foster care system.
Why did you want to work at Kitsap Bank?
What started out as just being a stable job, with regular hours and benefits, quickly grew in to a love for the homey feel and community involvement. I can’t imagine anywhere else.
What's your favorite charity/organization to support?
Two of my favorite charities are Seattle Children’s Hospital as well as Kitsap Habitat for Humanity. Seattle Children’s Hospital saved my baby sister’s life with a heart transplant at 9 weeks old, and Habitat for Humanity helped give my mom and younger siblings a safe affordable place to live.
What do you like to do outside of work?
Outside of work I love to spend time with my husband and dogs. We love camping, kayaking, hikes and traveling.
